Work Orders Have Launched!

Work orders are typically used primarily by vacation rental property managers to manage and track maintenance tasks across large numbers of properties. Additionally, the expense of those tasks is many times passed on to the property owner via the monthly owner statement. Lodgix has an entire subsystem that allows work orders to be created, edited, updated and ultimately closed. The property manager can allocate the expense and assign it to a property owner where the work order expense will be itemized and place on the owner statement.

The work orders menu item is place conveniently on the primary menu, next to the Calendar Tape. From this menu, there are submenus for viewing and creating work orders, as well as a vendor contact manager and some configuration options for the subsystem.

Release 2 of the Property Management Module is Coming…

Screenshots from the demo server:

Screenshot above shows the new menu item for “Work Orders”, the “Reports” menu item has been moved to the upper left icon area and will become an icon only.

Screenshot above shows the “Create New Work Order” interface.

The first two weeks of development were probably the most time intensive as most of the work was setting up and understanding the data flows, as well as bringing all the necessary technology together to create nice looking interfaces. We also have to update to Django 1.4 to support another component of the project related to the owner statements.

Lots of great stuff, just wanted to keep everyone updated on development!
